The bruising Chiefs prop Ben Tameifuna has re-signed with the Super Rugby franchise for the 2015 season.

The 22-year-old says he loves the environment at the Chiefs and dreams of becoming an All Black.

The Chiefs coach Dave Rennie says Tameifuna is a powerful man and a destructive tackler with an impressive skillset.

Rennie says Tameifuna does an amazing job in the community and is fantastic with people.

Tameifuna made his Chiefs debut in March 2012 and has played 48 games for the side.

He was part of the 2011 New Zealand Under 20 Junior World Championship side and will play his ITM Cup for Waikato.
